On “Blunt Blowin’,” from Tha Carter IV, Lil Wayne kicks a bar about, “Young Mula, skinnies and some SUPRAs.”
Now, the New Orleans rapper can sport his own line of the sneaker brand.
While in Las Vegas, Tunechi was at Project, part of the Magic Convention, and announced a collaboration with sneaker company, Supra. “I was just rocking ‘em when I was skating and stuff and when I got real cool with the homie, Stevie Williams, it was like a plug from him,” he said. “It was just a mutual respect on each end so it was just bound to happen. I look at the reality and the facts of it, like I been rocking this shoe before I even knew what it was. So for me to start skating and for these shoe lines to start coming at me like, ‘Hey, we wanna give you your own skate shoe,’ it was only right for me to mess with the people I been messing with even before they were a skate shoe.”
His inaugural line is slated to hit stores May 1 of next year.
